Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Falcons. He returned to a limited practice on Friday, his first official practice of the season. We'd still be a little surprised if Watson played on Sunday, but we'll get Green Bay's inactives around 11:30 am ET.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) missed practice again on Thursday. He's a long shot to play vs. the Falcons this weekend and should be on fantasy benches.

Packers LB Quay Walker missed practice Wednesday and is in the concussion protocol. That makes him unlikely to play Sunday against the Falcons, though we'll keep an eye on the second-year LB's status.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. He was spotted doing some rehab work off to the side at the beginning of the session. But fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on Watson returning for Sunday's game vs. the Falcons. We'll see if he's able to practice tomorrow.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) told reporters on Monday that he's not sure he'll be ready for Week 2. He at least said that he doesn't believe a trip to IR is necessary. He added that the hamstring injury is to the same right leg as last year but added, “they’re all a little different” and it’s “not the same thing, not in the same spot," per ESPN's Rob Demovsky. We'll track Watson's progress throughout the week.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs did not have a big fantasy day in the Week 1 win over Denver, totaling 71 scoreless yards. But he remained a workhorse, despite re-joining the team just about two weeks ago. Jacobs handled 19 of Vegas' 20 RB carries and three of the five RB targets. His 88% share of his team's backfield opportunities (carries + targets) is the second highest on the week through the Sunday afternoon games. If this type of usage holds -- and we think it will -- Jacobs will have no problem scoring as a RB1. Week 2 brings a tough spot in Buffalo, but Jacobs' volume should keep him in fantasy lineups.

Packers WR Romeo Doubs hauled in a pair of receiving TDs in Week 1 vs. the Bears. The second-year wideout only mustered 4 catches on 5 targets for 26 receiving yards in the victory, though fantasy managers aren’t too picky about that when a player finds the end zone twice. We’ll see how Doubs fares once teammate Christian Watson (hamstring) returns to the lineup, though preseason reports early in the summer suggested that Love and Doubs built a solid rapport in OTAs. Will it continue in Week 2 vs. the Falcons? We would be remiss to exclude the efforts of TE Luke Musgrave, a player who caught 3 of 4 targets for 50 yards in his NFL debut. Congrats to the rookie.

Packers QB Jordan Love completed 15 passes on 27 attempts for 245 yards with 3 TDs and no INTs in Sunday’s win vs. the Bears. The new Green Bay starter also added 12 yards rushing on 3 carries in the contest. This is the first start from Love since 2021. Despite not having WR Christian Watson (hamstring) in the lineup, the Packers’ offense looked sharp. Fantasy managers could look to Love for help in Week 2 vs. the Falcons should his full complement of weapons return to the fold. Keep up with practice reports from Green Bay throughout the coming week.

Packers WR Romeo Doubs (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Bears. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that Doubs is expected to be limited today. He’s not a recommended fantasy starter.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and ESPN's Adam Schefter report that Packers WR Romeo Doubs (hamstring) is expected to play vs. the Bears today. But he'll be limited. Rapoport tweets that Doubs "likely won't have a full complement of snaps." He's not a recommended Week 1 fantasy starter. Expect a run-heavy attack from the Packers, with RB Aaron Jones, WR Jayden Reed, and TE Luke Musgrave the best bets for targets.

Packers HC Matt LaFleur labeled WR Christian Watson "week-to-week" with his hamstring injury but said he doesn't think it will be a "3- or 4-week thing," according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky. Watson has already been ruled out for Week 1, and it sounds like we should consider him questionable at best for Week 2.

Packers WR Romeo Doubs (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Bears. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. Even if Doubs ends up active on Sunday, he’ll be at risk of reduced snaps and reinjury. We’d try not to use him in Week 1 fantasy lineups. With WR Christian Watson (hamstring) out, WR Jayden Reed and TE Luke Musgrave should see increased target shares. But we’re expecting a run-heavy attack from Green Bay, featuring RBs Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) is out for Sunday's opener vs. the Bears. He didn't practice all week, leaving his availability for Week 2 and beyond uncertain. We'll track his status when Green Bay gets back to work next week.

Packers WR Romeo Doubs (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That gives him a shot to suit up for this weekend's opener vs. the Bears. We'll see what Doubs does on Friday and how he's listed on the final injury report.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) missed practice again on Thursday. At this point, he looks unlikely to play vs. the Bears this weekend. We'll see if Watson is able to get on the field tomorrow.

Packers WRs Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs missed Wednesday's practice with hamstring injuries. Doubs has been sidelined for close to two weeks now, but it's unclear when Watson got hurt. Their absences vs. the Bears this weekend would leave rookies Jayden Reed and Luke Musgrave as Green Bay's top two pass-catchers -- and likely mean heavy doses of RBs Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon.

The Colts have released RB Kenyan Drake. With RB Jonathan Taylor's status still unresolved, this just signals that Drake failed to beat out RBs Deon Jackson or Evan Hull. Zack Moss remains out with a wrist injury. We should know more about Taylor's status this week and will certainly keep watching the whole situation.

Packers QB Jordan Love completed a nice preseason Saturday against the Seahawks. He went 9-of-15 passing for 63 yards and a TD vs. Seattle. That makes him 21 of 33 (63.6%) for 193 yards, 3 TDs, and 0 INTs across three preseason contests. Love notched a 109.8 passer rating. The new starter added 21 yards on the ground against the Seahawks, giving him 32 yards on five rushes for the preseason. SI.com's Bill Huber says Love "didn't scramble much during training camp," so we probably shouldn't expect big rushing numbers. But he has the speed and athleticism to add at least some fantasy value there. Most importantly, Love remains low in QB2 territory in ADP. That leaves basically nothing but upside to drafting him in leagues where a second QB makes sense.

Per reporter Rob Demovsky, Packers WR Romeo Doubs missed Saturday’s preseason game with a hamstring injury. No word yet on the severity, but we’ll look for an update this weekend. Doubs sits low in our WR rankings.

The Raiders and RB Josh Jacobs have agreed to a one-year deal worth up to $12 million, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. It's the same thing RB Saquon Barkley got from the Giants. Each RB was limited in what he could get once the July deadline passed for franchise-tagged players to sign long-term contracts. This new pact brings Jacobs back with still more than two weeks before the regular-season opener. We'll see how quickly Jacobs' ADP rebounds. He has commonly been going in Round 3 of recent drafts. He's certainly a nice value in that range and can make sense anywhere from the second half of Round 2 on -- depending on your format. Jacobs never moved much in our fantasy football rankings this summer.
